Description

This is a frequently used 25 item health status assessment of perceived health status for IBD (UC and Crohn’s disease). It evaluates the worries and concerns associated with IBD and its treatments. The questionnaire has a single item summary score as well as several health status indices (impact of disease, complications of disease, body stigma, and sexual intimacy). The instrument has concurrent validation as it is highly corelated with several measures of poor daily function.
